Bought a 1999 saab 93 a few weeks ago it has a full service history with £650 spend on it in Aug this year. It had been lying up for a few week. When i first drove it it was a dream but in the last week it has started to buck in every gear when the revs hit 2000. Have no idea where to start to solve this problem. Please help as i am new to Saabs.

my saabturbo 93 year 2003 model,
sudenly abs and brake lights showing up at meter box... when the lights come out rpm meter, speedometer, air-cond all jam... if the light disapearred everyting will function well back.. on the same time i turn off enjin and try to start back but cannot start until the light showing.. when the light disapearred can start. why?
The DPF (diesel particulate filter) will require regeneration. This is a filter inside the catalytic convertor which has to be really really hot to regenerate on its own. Try running the car as normal for 15 minutes to normal operating temp, then drive it for 3 or 4 miles in 2nd or 3rd gear at 4 or 5000 revs and this will heat up the catatlyst and MAY regenerate, if not your saab dealer will need to do it with their diagnostic machine.
Cars with DFP's need to have a good rev out run weekly to avoid this happening again.Also make sure you are using the correct engine oil spec when servicing as this can casue issues with it.
Try checking the fluid level first, and then look for any leaks. if corrected right away you might not have to rebuild the trans. but other wise look into the cost of a rebuilt transmission.
you have to push your shift override button? Your cable that runs from your ignition/steering column to your shift knob could be worn and therefore loose not allowing the car the be shifted out of park (as if your key weren't in the ignition). Hope this helps
does it light up like a christmas tree? I had a simliar problem last year on my 2000 9.5 aero. I beleive it was the tcs on, tcs off, emergency light, and 2 others, i forget now. After paying the saab dealer $800 to try and diagnose it, finally they came up with a faulty abs switch. Cost to replace was over 3k. I took it to my other mechanic and he found one in a junk yard for half the price. I had it replaced over a year now and it works fine.
Have them check out the ABS switch. I later found simliar info on the web of other saab dealers
